More quakes rattle Ridgecrest area

That Big California Earthquake Left A Scar That's Visible From Space

Deputies had discovered the body of the 56-year-old on Tuesday on his property in Pahrump, Nevada, about 180 miles (290 km) northeast of the California city of Ridgecrest that took the brunt of the quakes.

Two strong quakes - a magnitude 6.4 and a 7.1, respectively - struck Thursday and Friday near the small town of Ridgecrest, just outside the 1.2 million-acre base in the Mojave Desert. "Each color cycle represents 4.8 inches of ground displacement in the radar line-of-sight", a statement from NASA said. "The linear features across which the color fringes break indicate likely locations of surface rupture caused by the earthquakes, and the "noisy" areas may indicate locations where ground surface was disturbed by the earthquakes". The region has also experienced 1,000 aftershocks that opened up a few cracks.

On Monday, US President Donald Trump approved a request by California Governor Gavin Newsom to declare a state of emergency, unlocking extra funds.

That has prompted residents of the San Francsico Bay Area, far north of Ridgequest, are making sure they have everything they need in case a big natural disaster strikes and they have to evacuate, Kron 4 reported.

Shakes from the quake were felt throughout California, with shaking extending "at least as far east as Phoenix and as far north as Sacramento", according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

The NASA satellite images are not the only views of the earthquakes visible from space.

A sprawling military base in the Southern California desert remains closed to non-essential personnel as damage assessments continue following last week's powerful earthquakes.

It would be the first death linked to the magnitude 6.4 quake near Ridgecrest that was felt far and wide.
